Clutches & Brakes

The torque to be transmitted can be switched on and off during both standstill and operation using a clutch. Executions: electro-magnetic, hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical. Torque [TkN] up to 1.000.000 Nm.

FEATURES – Clutches & Brakes

  • connect and disconnect two shafts
  • start-up of the drive-N machinery
  • protect the installation against overload
  • limit torque transmittance to only one direction of rotation (overrunning clutch)

RH-Ü overrunning clutches allow to drive shaft and machines first by means of an auxiliary drive at low speed for start-up and, for instance, for setting up, and then by means of the main drive at higher speeds for full load operation, the auxiliary drive then being shut off automatically by overrunning.

Between auxiliary drive and main drive – i.e. cement mills, rotary kiln... [ read more ]
